UW-Platteville celebrates one year of Pioneer Pete
The University of Wisconsin-Platteville unveiled an updated and stylized version of Pioneer Pete on Oct. 18, 2012—giving the university an official mascot for the first time in at least two decades.
The mascot is based on a 2011 survey in which nearly 5,000 students, faculty, staff and alumni participated. The Pioneer and the miner both scored a 90 percent favorable rank in almost every question. The other finalists, the dog and horse options, both were below 30 percent.
